Can a spouse in a Florida car accident recover damages for injuries that are sustained by the other spouse?


Yes, in Florida we have what’s called a loss of consortium claim. What that is is for the uninjured spouse to recover for damages for the loss of love, sexual relations or household services that are provided by the other spouse. There are several factors that will be weighed by the court to determine how much that is. That includes, but it’s not limited to how stable the marriage was, how long the marriage was and also what’s important to note is that in Florida there is a $1 million cap that’s placed on a loss of consortium claim.
